We have a small backyard and are currently building a pool. The dig happened on Friday and our 13x30 ft pool is now a 11x28 (due to the footers of our sea wall extending further than we thought)(with a 7'X5' tanning shelf off the shallow end) . We have (2) 48" benches planned for each side of the deep end (5' deep end depth) sitting opposite of each other. One to sit and look out over the water and the other one to look at the porch where the TV is located. We also thought it would be nice for conversation to have the benches opposite of each other. Pool would be adult use only unless we have visitors with children. I have 2 questions: Will having 2 benches opposite each other crowd the pool too much since it is only 11'? What would the optimal length of the each bench be to sit 2 adults (again keeping in mind this is a small pool 36", 42", 48")? Any input from the seasoned pros out there would be helpful! Thanks.
